 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan

Old timers or odd rhymers?

You can forget what you did yesterday
Plan for ten minutes not the whole day
Live for the moment
Except for the bruises, the pain
Black eyes and bloody noses
OK, I thought she was bright!
Allowed her around gardening tools
One of those long extension trimming things
Pulled the rope and the limb did not break
Easy solution pull rope with both hands
What comes up comes down!
No, not the rope, the extension tool.
Possible concussion, broken nose, and black eye
Do I take her to emergency?
Today I would be in handcuffs?
Who would believe lady pulled the rope with both hands?
I love this lady did not marry her for her brains
mixed emotions she didn't't marry me for my looks
Ex-medic remember little but eyes dialed correctly
If she had brains she would have gone for Elvis
Have to search old poems for this one?
Don't feel too sorry for her!
Keeps her from working in the garden
Feel sorry for me!
She took pictures sent them to all our friends
"Dan had enough!"
What I love about her she too has a sense of humor
Only not so sure any real sense
We are getting phone calls
"I knew he was a monster all the time!"
"You should have gone to dinner with Elvis."
"Not that wimp--you would have kicked his--butt!"
Enough insults she is out of the garden
If she wants to be---I have total control!
Son and daughter in law were sweet
The kids want an early X-mas present for us
A once a week gardener
I am still not ready to be put to pasture
But we are getting her back in the kitchen
